2018 Carrera de las Charolas de Antigua Guatemala

XVII Carrera de las Charolas de Antigua Guatemala by Rudy Giron

For 17 years we have had a very peculiar race in Antigua Guatemala, La Carrera de las Charolas, a race where waitress, waiters and bar men run through the streets of the colonial city while holding a tray with drinks. Whoever finishes first without dropping the contents of their tray wins. Over 360 people participated this year.

This year I decided to do a time-lapsed video of the starting line. The first part of the clip is the women part of the race. As you can see, the second part of the video clip shows a larger crowd.

If you speak Spanish you can also watch the news capsule by one of the local media sites. Enjoy!
